It's no surprise that Rare Waves (Eric Archer's new company) is putting out another unique device. His Grendel Drone Commander, Eurorack Format Grendel Formant Filter, Rhythm Bots, are previous examples of his cutting edge work. This time around he's created a kit of one of his early designs: LITE2SOUND. It uses a laser diode cell to take in different frequencies of light and output their pitch equivalents. This is different from a cadmium sulfide cell or photo cell in that close proximity to light is not an issue. Simply point it at any light source and begin hearing the strange textures and frequencies therein.
Here is an awesome use of the LITE2SOUND kit using a strobe light to trigger a sequence in a Serge modular system.

PolyMoog Synthesizers are rare to come by, and even more rare to find one working. Switched On's most excellent technicians have mastered bringing these rare and difficult to repair boards back to former glory. This one that just hit the sales floor is a good example.
Few polyphonic synths sound like the PolyMoog, because few companies dared to design one as complex in this era of synthesizers. Notoriously temperamental and equally infamous for its rich sound, the PolyMoog offers a unique feature set. Its resonant equalizer section and Moog low pass filter allow the user shape the sound in subtle ways. It also has an excellent semi-weighted keyboard that has a rewarding tactile feel, very uncommong for synths of this era.

The Future Retros XS is a powerful and versatile semi-modular analog synthesizer in a desktop form factor. It can send and receive CV/Gate as well as Midi, so it comes primed to interract with any of your live setup or studio. More info, demos, and purchasing HERE.
The Future Retro Orb is an easy to use, single track, step-based digital sequencer, ideal for controlling the XS semi-modular synthesizer as well as any other analog CV/Gate or MIDI synthesizers. The Orb is also a perfect solution for controlling 303 clones which often lack the essential sequencer. More info and purchasing HERE.
We've received our new order of the Arturia Minibrute! With it's complex modulation routings, thick analog sound, steiner-parker filter design, and $499.00 price point it's no wonder they flew off the shelves last time.
